I came across a scenario that puzzled me.

I am using an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 sound card connected to my VS-2480.

If I set the 2496 sync source to external I can get sound from the PC to the Roland but not in the other direction.

If I set the 2496 sync source to internal I can get sound to transfer from the Roland to the PC but not in the other direction.

In both cases I set the Roland's sync source appropriately.

I asked M-Audio and they said that this is expected behaviour.

Have you guys run into this issue? Are there any cards that work bi-directionally over S/PDIF?

Thanks,
Steve

Digital feedback is no fun.

Ah, I get you now.

Well, there would be no digital feedback unless I was monitoring the input stream.

I could be recording into the 2480 and sending it across S/PDIF to Reaper while simultaneously monitoring any tracks from Reaper back through the 2480.

As long as I am not monitoring the track being recorded from the Reaper side this is perfectly legit.

For me it's more about not having to switch back and forth than having it at the same time.

Anyways, I bought a V-Fire so that should solve my problem.

Cool, I have experienced the no fun feedback but it was many years ago so details are sketchy now. I think it was the old Edirol UA-25 and a combination of optical & coaxial to enable the loop.
Anyway, glad You got it sorted without ever hearing that sound.
